Volunteers are needed for our Imani Book Club which is a six-week summer reading program that improves literacy and nurtures an appreciation for the written word. Volunteers will be helping participants in grades 4th-12th grade engage in written and oral activities, create presentations, journal, participate in debates and holistically build successful reading strategies from start to finish.
Books are hand-selected annually by the Center for Leadership Development’s program coordinator and are relevant and engaging.

The mission of the Center for Leadership Development is to foster the advancement of minority youth in Central Indiana as future professional, business and community leaders by providing experiences that encourage personal development and educational attainment.
At the Center for Leadership Development, we work with minority youth to put them on an academic, college, and career track so that they can become professional, business and community leaders. We utilize a values-based program model and instill five Principles of Success: Character Development, Educational Excellence, Leadership Effectiveness, Community Service and Career Achievement.
We work to close the gap in academic and professional attainment by offering programs and free services to minority youth. By making a profound difference in individual lives, we aim to transform our entire community. We aspire to serve twice as many youth and be a model for other cities challenged to engage their youth in education and purposeful and productive lives.
